The Kings may have defeated the Ducks in the Western Conference Semifinals — and ultimately went on to win the Stanley Cup — but the Ducks didn't go down without a fight. This will be the first Freeway Face-Off of the season, so you better believe it is going to be an intense battle.

This will be the first contest between Ryan Kesler and the Canucks since Kesler agreed to be traded to Anaheim. Kesler spent 10 seasons with the Canucks, but figured that his best chance at hoisting the Stanley Cup would be by separating himself from the only NHL team he's known.

This isn't the most exciting matchup, but it is an important day for Ducks fans and the NHL as a whole. Before the two teams face off, the Ducks will retire Teemu Selanne's number. The 44-year-old Stanley Cup champion will be commemorated by having the No. 8 hung from the rafters in honor of all the great accomplishments he had in Anaheim and the NHL.
